Fort McMurray-Conklin is a provincial electoral district in northern Alberta, Canada. The district was created in the 2010 boundary redistribution and is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the first past the post voting system.
History [ edit ]
The electoral district was created in the
2010 Alberta boundary re-distribution. It was created from the electoral district of Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo which was split in half to accommodate population growth which has occurred in the region over the past decade due to exploitation and development of the oil sands.
Representation history [ edit ]
The riding's first representative was
Progressive Conservative Don Scott, who served one term until defeated by Wildrose leader Brian Jean. Jean subsequently changed his affiliation to United Conservative when the two parties merged. After an unsuccessful run for the party's leadership, he decided to retire from politics, vacating the seat in early 2018. The resulting by-election was won easily by Jean's former staffer and previous Grande Prairie-Wapiti candidate Laila Goodridge for the United Conservatives.
Boundary history [ edit ]
The district's boundaries were not altered during its brief existence. In the redistribution of 2017, the riding was abolished and will be replaced with
Fort McMurray-Lac La Biche for the next general election.
